Hardware News : Minimig ARM controller firmware upgrade ;)

Hi all there ;)

The ARM conceptor, Jakub Bednarski, has relaesed a great new firmware version yesterday !

This new version brings the following improvements :


- Two hardfiles are now supported instead of only one,
- You can choose which hardfiles to use : no more need to name it 'hardfile.hdf', you just need to copy the hardfiles at the root of the memory card,
- File sorting improvement,
- Unlimited number of directories, sub-directories, files and depth,
- Page up / Page down keys can now be used for scrolling the files,
- Backspace key can be used for going to the parent directory,
- Kickstart 1.2 is now supported,
- Upgrade of the ARM controller is possible directly from the memory card !

In the same time, Jakub has done some optimisations of the Minimig's mods use (memory extension and hardfile access acceleration) ;)

You can download a guide explaining the upgrade process and also the files needed for it here :
- English ARM controller upgrade guide,
- Upgrade Firmware file
- Updated Core file.

Also, I remind that I can still provide the memory upgrade service for the Minimig's boards in order to have 3,5MB of Ram instead of the original 1,5MB for 100 euros (return shipping costs excluded and VAT included) and that I can still provide the Minimig's accessories like the Minibox from Loriano Pagni or the VGA to Scart cables !
Please note that these hardware modifications CANCEL automatically your warranty on the Minimig's board !

You can find all my Minimig's prices here :
- Minimig's price list on the 13/09/2009
And also a little presentation of the Minimig done with Hollywood on a Sam440EP ITX :
- Presentaion for AmigaOS 4.x,
- Presentaion for MorphOS,
- Presentaion for Windows.

Thanks to all of you for your support and many thanks to Jakub for his awesome job !
And Thanks to ACube for allowing this adventure ;)
